Top Antivirus For Android

Hackers are targeting Android users in a flurry due to the emergence of crypto-mining and ransomware attacks. Millions of dollars have been snatched away, identities compromised and computing power was given away to cybercriminals over the last few years. Luckily, an antivirus application for Android can shield your devices from all types of threats. Choose an app that is easy to set up, intuitive and includes additional features like tools for optimizing your system, anti-theft protections and parental controls.

Avast Mobile Security is a well-known brand in the field of security on the internet. Its Android version has a full suite of protection with a free version and affordable subscription plans that offer complete protection for your mobile device/s, PC and laptop/tablet/computer. Its malware protection is excellent with minimal impact on performance. It also includes call blocker, VPN, junk cleaner and photo vault, Wi-Fi network security RAM increase, anti-theft, web shield and other features.

Kaspersky Mobile Antivirus offers absolute protection for a reasonable price. Its malware detection is superb with minimal impact on battery usage and it also has an ability to block calls, Wear OS support and other extras. The only downside is it’s not as user-friendly as some of its competitors and it does not provide a money back guarantee.

AhnLab is a company from South Korea, is another excellent choice. It scored near-perfectly in my hands-on labs and tests however it’s not as user-friendly an interface. It’s not as active on social media or community forums like other scanguard for mac apps on this listing. However, it has high detection rates for Android malware, according to AV-Test and AV-Comparatives (but it hasn’t been tested by either lab since the year 2015).
